adjacent properties would be eliminated for those city planning processes that have large areas over five acres or greater. and this, again, is our current practice, but it would be codified. so, that's the big change for e-i-r. for neglect dick murphy decks, the position for appealing these would be unchanged except for three changes. first a negative declaration could not be appealed through the board unless it is first appealed here to this body. currently that is not the case. this change aims to have c-e-q-a issues addressed at the draft stage as is envisioned by the state c-e-q-a law. second, i described the mailing for these large city-run five acre and larger projects. that same would apply if they were covered by a negative declaration. there would be no need to do a mail notice to all those parties in the [speaker not understood]. third, this idea of a consistent 20-day deadline for filing appeals would also be established for negative declarations. that's the negative declarations. now let's look at exemptions. the ordinance does increase noticing for exemptions. i think i

though the district was spending more per pupil than large u.s. cities, almost $13,000 per student. but in 2009, washington, d.c. became first in the nation to tie teacher salaries to student test scores under a program called "impact." teachers rated highly effective can get annual bonuses up to $25,000 if they stay at that achievement level for two straight years, they can also get a base salary increase of $20,000. a highly effective teacher can earn $76,000, the first year, and reach $131,000 in just nine years. less effective teachers earn 51,000 to start and are fired if they get poor involveses for two straight years. this year, 98 teachers were fired for poor performance. but nathan saunders, president of the washington teachers union, says the system is unfair to teachers when many of their student have barriers to learning, such as poverty. >> the penalties are so immediate and so painful, not just immediate in terms of their paycheck, but also immediate in terms of their careers. >> reporter: in washington, test scores are still among the lowest in the nation, but improv

of public health in reforming some of the ways that that department and the city at large respond to complaints about bed bugs; it has become more prevalent. it has become a lot more of the issue as the media gives more attention to this. the city has adopted protocols to respond to this in a more timely manner. to get back to the report, the mission sro collaborative, senior action collaborative, we went out and we interviewed over 150 sro tenants who live in chinatown, mission, central city area, seniors, people with disabilities. we had a wide range of questions. it is focused on being a needs assessment. to see what sort of needs the population was facing so we could identify recommendations slowly work to implement those recommendations. we have a couple of other people who will speak about those things today. i will turn it over to jessica at this point to talk a little bit more about what the results of the report were and some of the recommendations that came out of that report. >> thank you. thanks so much to the council for having us here and thank you to joanna fraguli for

more of a public recreation and open space access for the city at large which really gets integrated with mixed use development sites that are identified within the waterfront land use plan, and in carrying out this planning process originally there was another advisory group that was created that recommended a plan to the port commission at the time. the port commission in 1997 approved that plan and upon approving the plan then the port also then went to work with the planning commission and the board of supervisors and mb dc to outline the policies appropriate for the waterfront with the city's planned policies for the waterfront and to align the various jurisdictions and to try to give careful and consistent focus what should be happening along that waterfront. as i mentioned there are mixed use development opportunities that are identified in the land use plan, and the bryant street opportunity area is one of those within the south beach area consisting of pier 30-32 and sea wall lot 330. during the plan process it was always seen as an opportunity to create these mix use mariti

it was put in place by then supervisor aaron peskin as a baseline so the city on large projects can say this can pencil out or can't. it should stop some fly by night stuff people tried to propose and it serves that purpose. it's vetted by harvey rose and says yeah it can fly if all of these things come into play. they come into place at the time of the term sheet and the last negotiations. they're sort of in my opinion the fiscal fiscallablity study is like an eir and takes the big box and study everything in the box and see whether it's possible, what are the mitigations, and then guild within that box. the same thing with the fiscal feasibility study it's to look at it and come down to the actual terms. i know it's a very aggressive plan. the concept to play in arena in 2017 blew everyone's mind and still does. i don't know if it can be done. i really don't in this city but i think there is a responsibility of the cac, of the commission and certainly the board of supervisors to see whether it's possible and i look forward to the process, so as long as people understand that this

have 200 data sets that have already been put out there, but by and large the data sets put out by city government are data sets that i think show us in a very positive way. from my perspective, it's important for us to keep on pushing data sets that allow us to deal with the sometimes imperfections in city government. to figure it out, where it is we need to take risks, we are we can be more entrepreneurial, where we can be more transparent and frank little more accountable to all of you as the residents and as our customers here in city government. and this is why i am proud tomorrow to help move forward legislation that my staff has been working closely with jay nath and mayor leon that will real i do three things. first of all, it will create a chief data officer because we need one person who is responsible and accountable for moving forward our open data agenda. secondly, we're going to require every department in the city to have a representative who is responsible for data so you can go to our transit agency, our police department, any of our 50 plus departments and know who can

four city blocks of that large and iconic park. the alamo square project that we propose, this mou would cover anyway would cover this need within the park. the current system there we have a leaking irrigation system that is over 30 years old. more stunningingly we have a corroded coupler line, over 70 years old which far exceeds life cycle of that time. we have low water pressure in the park, which impacts our water distribution in the existing irrigation system. we have an inefficient irrigation system design and layout difficult to maintain lawn and steep slopes and underutilized areas. this is the actual need we have. in june of this year we were awarded by the puc the -- a grant in the amount of 1,318,485 to undertake this project, which requires the mou before you today. that particular project we have proposed would address these particular items. it would replace irrigation system. replace that completely quick cover line, install a booster pump to increase water pressure, improve irrigation system layout and design, replace unusable turf with drought tolerant plantings, w

other at-large participants and they work with the city on -- well, the expansion project. in addition, to the expansion project the assessment district is going to fund a couple other things. it's going to fund a convention sales and marketing. so they'll basically be promoting the convention center to the conventions that exist internationally and nationally and try to lure them to san francisco with some of the funds. they'll have a capital reserve and maintenance reserve for future renovation needs, as well as they operate the assessment district itself. so the construction timeline is 2015 to 2018. and again, the term of district itself for the assessments goes from 2013 to 2045. so with that, i am happy to take questions. it was a really quick and brief overview. i know. but we are really excited to work with the hotels and the tourism and hospitality industry to make this happen. we think this is a really great project for the city because it's improving the city-owned asset, the convention center, as well as increasing taxes for the city's general fund and a lot of job

we'll be constructing? >> they are definitely expanding in different cities, yes. so that is a large part of why this is necessary. they have done exhaustive research at the san francisco travels, what is needed? and met with and had many many focus meetings with industry leaders around what is required to support the convention industry. so the design is being very tailored to meet exactly -- they have lots of survey responses as well, as what is required here? we have a lot of seats here. people want to come here. we have one of the highest demand convention centers because they want to be in san francisco. but it's our facility size that is limiting us right now. >> thank you. >> commissioner riley? >> hi. you mentioned the projected occupancy would be at 87.6% when the expansion was done. so what is the current occupancy? >> i believe it's around 80%. let me see if i can find that for you as well. i don't have all the statistics on the tourism industry. i'm sorry. >> that is all right. thank you. >> i'm more of the finance person on the project, but i could definitely get t

our kids by and large are clueless about this. it is not just language thing. these kids know more about the middle east and china. in speaking to the average high- school in new york city and after it's about what is happening in the world, i think it would take your breath away. this is a serious problem. the second part of what the technology can matter is because we did not have to limit the school day anymore to the hours inside the school room. as -- there is much more we can do. i watch people here from a great school in sweden. and they have managed to create a portal in ways. i met a kid whose mother was an aris -- was a nurse. we are the only profession that admits we are failing in what we're doing for our kids and we all go home at 3:00. there has to be a way to think differently about the dimensions of the challenge. i think technology is part of that problem. about to go back to what condie started. as important as music and art and global history is, to two cannot read into basic mathematics -- kids who cannot read or do basic mathematics will not do higher or critic

the city when they operate a parking location for themselves. this does not apply to third party operates that are contracted by government entities. and the large reason for this is that if a government entity has costs of compliance, they may be able to deduct that from the taxes that they remit to the city. so we found we would much rather have them remit the taxes rather than deduct the cost of compliance. >> any commissioner comments? commissioner ortiz? >> thank you. this is amazing legislation. i think it will really help small business. i had a couple of questions. if a school, let's say, everett during gay pride and awful, that they have parking. they do it themselves. are they required to go through the process of getting the permits and everything, even it's a one-day use? >> you are talking about like a san francisco unified school district? >> yes. >> there was prior legislation that handled this issue, where if there is a completely volunteer-run operation, that is on a san francisco unified school site, they may get a permit through the pta in order to operate and
